OHIO VALLEY — If you love Halloween, costumes and contests, then we have the competition for you.
The Gallipolis Daily Tribune, Pomeroy Daily Sentinel and the Point Pleasant Register will be conducting the Virtual Costume Party, courtesy of title sponsor John Sang Ford.
“CivitasMedia provides contests for our local readers and encourages our community to participate in good ol’ family fun activities,” said Julia Schultz, media director for Ohio Valley Publishing’s news outlets in Gallipolis, Pomeroy and Point Pleasant.
“Halloween is a fun time and our communities really get into the spirit of the holiday,” Bud Hunt, publisher of the Gallipolis Daily Tribune, said. “With our contests, our readers get to share their fun with everyone, and so we thank our advertisers for giving them that opportunity.”
There will be one overall winner chosen based on the total number of votes received. That winner will receive $100.
“The various contests that Civitas Media hosts throughout the year encourage participation from our readers, both through our websites and in our papers,” Brenda Davis, ad representative, said. “The Halloween contest is a fun family activity that everyone can get involved in, and gives them the chance to win prizes.”
Submissions begins Oct. 17 and will end Oct. 31. Voting begins Nov. 1 on mydailytribune.com, mydailyregister.com and mydailysentinel.com. Voting ends Nov. 10, with the winner announced shortly thereafter. The winner will be featured in the print version of all three papers, as well as on all three websites.
Start thinking of those costume ideas and send them in for your chance to win.
